Design a New ACME Product for the Coyote
*I am currently working my way through my fourth semester of the Information and Learning Technologies master’s program at University of Colorado, Denver. This is the tenth post within a series of Daily Creates that I’ve been assigned to complete for a course titled Digital Storytelling.
Today’s Daily Create stated: “In his relentless pursuit of the Roadrunner, Wile E. Coyote has relied on many fine products from the Acme Corporation. But have they kept up with modern times? Refer to this poster of every Acme Product designed by Rob Loukotka — and find something new for Wile E. Design it as a drawing or a poster.”
From the Wired article on Loukotka’s design work:
“The ACME Corporation is essentially a dream factory,” Loukotka says, “They make anything and everything you can imagine, and ship it to you instantly. Invisible paint? Got it. Rocket-powered pogo stick? Got it. Super hero outfit? Got it. Massive quantities of faulty explosives? Definitely got it.”
I started thinking, if I were Wile E. Coyote, what would I want? But then I started thinking, if Wile E. Coyote were ME, what would HE want??? And well, I know what I would want, in turn, what he would want, as me, or me as him, either way. MONEY! I need a magical money maker!!! So I made one. Here is the promotional poster:
